Sunday TV Ratings 6/5/22: NBA Finals Tick Up, MTV Movie & TV Awards Above-Average for The CW, Duncanville Plummets (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: The Warriors won game two of the 'NBA Finals' (3.71, +0.08), and the ABC telecast was up by eight-hundredths from Thursday's first game (3.63). In contrast, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night' (0.35, -0.20) and 'NBA Countdown' (0.69, -0.16) were in freefall in the 7PM hour. The 10:30PM 'Post-Game' (1.85) was at about half the size of the main attraction. Encores of '60 Minutes' (0.38), 'The Equalizer' (0.22), 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.21), and 'SWAT' (0.22) populated the CBS schedule. NBC had reruns of 'Dancing With Myself' (0.12) and 'America's Got Talent' (0.25). At 10, their 'Jurassic Park to Jurassic World: Greatest Moments' special (0.28) went higher than everything that wasn't '60 Minutes' or NBA-related. Fox also tried to cash in on the hype surrounding the upcoming 'Jurassic World' film by airing a 'LEGO Masters' special related to the dinosaur franchise (0.18). It ended up being a full tenth lower than the peacock network's offering and led into abysmal 'Duncanville' originals (0.13/0.12). The 9:30 'Duncan' was bested by a 7PM rerun of 'MasterChef' (0.13) while the 9PM episode was no match for an 8PM repeat of 'The Simpsons' (0.20). The CW's telecast of the 'MTV Movie & TV Awards' (0.07) did well enough by the network's standards and nearly doubled last week's 'Riverdale' (0.04).

Finals Update: 'NBA Finals Game 2' (+1.3) and the repeat of '60 Minutes' (+0.1) adjusted up. 'Jimmy Kimmel Live Game Night' (-0.7) and 'NBA Countdown' (-0.5) adjusted down.
